Hi forum, I'm scratching my head... Boot doesn't open electrically (tailgate or door switch). Opens mechanically from inside. Checked fuses and pin position in boot. After having it all a part, here's what I'm left with: the boot and door switch work fine when the boot is fully open. When the lock is manually closed, the switches open fine. When the boot is lowered, after about 10 degrees of lowering, the electric switching stops working.

I've had the locking mechanism off the boot and the switch out of the boot and these work fine independent of position.

So, something is stopping the switch working when the boot is lowered. No visible water or damage to wiring going down the strut in the boot. The rest of the loom works fine regardless of boot open/closed/position.

Any ideas?
